Hello, We are a pair of mother and daughter travelling to Switzerland in May. We are looking at enjoying the scenic views and culture, not going to do any skiing or adventurous hikes, basically just a very chill and relax kind of holiday. Here is the itinerary that we came up with. Any suggestions will be very much appreciated! Thank you in advanced!
Day 1- Zurich to Lucerne
Visit the cobbled streets, Lion Monument, Lake Lucerne, walk the Chapel Bridge.
Day 2 - Lucerne
Head to Mt. Titlis (spend about 3 hours). Stroll around Lake Lucerne after Titlis. Visit Musegg Wall and towers if time permits.
* Should we stay one more day to visit Mt. Pilatus?
Day 3-5 - Interlaken
We will do day trips to Jungfraujoch & Grindelwald. My mother has osteoporosis but would still like to do a simple hike in Grindelwald.
* Which route is easier? First to Lake Bachalpsee / Mannlichen to Kleine Scheidegg – jungfraujoch / First to Grosse Scheidegg?
*Will 2 nights be sufficient in Interlaken? Or should I base in Grindelwald instead?
*If weather is bad go to Bern instead?
Day – 6 Head to Zermatt.
Ride Matterhorn cog railway to Gornergrat to view Matterhorn. Explore the Old Village of Zermatt (Hinterdorf)
Day 7 – Glacier Express to St. Moritz
Day 8 – St. Moritz back to Zurich
Day 9 – Zurich
Day 10 – Zurich
Will this itinerary requires me to move my luggage from train to train a lot?
We do not wish to spend so many days in Zurich, we only require one day in Zurich to fly back home. Any suggestions on which base we should spend more time in?
Any recommendations on where to go in St. Moritz and Zermatt?
